WingNuts 2: Raina’s Revenge

Mac original is year’s top game

Freeverse’s follow-up to its 2001 arcade-style action game Wingnuts, WingNuts 2: Raina’s Revenge ( ; Game Room) has the same basic format as the original: while traveling through time, you shoot down squadron after squadron of robot-controlled airplanes—everything from old propeller planes and zeppelins to futuristic high-tech fighters. Combine Freeverse’s trademark sense of humor (resident bad guy Baron von Schtopwatch cracks an endless series of corny, and occasionally ribald, jokes, even as he tries to shoot you out of the sky) with top-notch production quality (OpenGL is used to great effect), and you have a game that’s fun, challenging, beautiful to look at, and delightful to play. Oh, and WingNuts 2 is a Mac original—how many games can we say that about these days?—PETER COHEN
